8/11/18 11 pm: Brandy’s intestines went into intussusception again and she wasn’t strong enough for another surgery, nor could she digest the nourishment she would need to grow strong enough to handle it. The kindest decision for her was to let her go peacefully. So sad to let her go, but so grateful to MEOW and the team at SVS for giving her the best chance possible. https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=729333184962&id=167100114
My friend, who is a general surgeon, said that often, recurrence of intussusception is caused by a tumor that is catching the visceral muscle and not allowing it to get into it’s right form.

Meet Brandi and her Intoxicating Kittens!
Brandi was wandering around an apartment complex, alone and hungry, when a kind, cat-person recognized that she didn’t have a home. A FOUND CAT sign was posted around the complex, but no one responded. Brandi’s finder couldn’t care for her, so they reached out to animal control to get her brought in and rescued so her babies wouldn’t be born outdoors. She had no microchip, no tags, a far too snug collar, lots of fleas, and was pretty skinny aside from the bulging babies. After the three-day stray hold, animal control was able to transfer Brandi to MEOW Cat Rescue on the very day I said I could pick up fosters for the summer. Starting with contractions at 5:30 a.m., Brandi gave birth to 6 kittens between 6:15 am and 9:45 am on Wednesday, June 27th.
